Events Occured in Scienctist Life


In 2015, he won a Thomson Reuters Australian Citation Award.


He worked as a researcher at the Institute of Crystallography of the Academy of Sciences of the Soviet Union and received his PhD degree from that institution in 1975.


In 1977, he briefly visited Germany as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow.


After leaving the Soviet Union in the Leonid Brezhnev years, Estrin migrated to Germany and ultimately moved to Hamburg in 1981 with his wife, Karin Estrin.


Estrin and his family migrated to Western Australia in 1992, where he became professor in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Western Australia.


Yuri Estrin has received international recognition for his scientific achievements, including Humboldt Awards (1999 and 2012), a Staudinger-Durrer Lecture at the Swiss Federal University of Technology (2011), a World-Class University professorship at Seoul National University (2009-2013), and a Helmholtz International Fellow Award from the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres.


In 2013, he won a grant of the Russian government under the so-called ‘megagrant’ scheme to establish research activities in hybrid nanostructured materials at Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys.


He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Russian Academy of Sciences (2008) and was elected fellow of the Australian Academy of Science (2013).Estrin is the author of more than 500 publications focussing on nanomaterials including nanomechanics, light alloys, alloy design, thin films, hybrid materials and multimaterials as well as design of novel materials based on geometry principles.
